For the third time this year, the big moment in Venezuela has turned into a bust. Trump administration officials had expected that Wednesday might turn out to be the beginning of the end for President Nicolas Maduro with senior government figures withdrawing support and the opposition launching a mass uprising with military backing. Or at least that’s what the administration had been led to believe.

Trump officials were back to complaining about the support Venezuela receives from Cuba and Russia while issuing vague warnings of military action.
